Mathematical Physics Group

Welcome to the web pages of the Mathematical Physics Group. We are part of the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, and are located on the first floor of the north wing of the Andrew Wiles Building on the Woodstock Road: click here for a map.

The group's research is centred around quantum theory and general relativity and programmes whose aim is to combine the two, particularly string theory and twistor theory. Much of the work of the group impacts on mathematics as well as physics, and we enjoy close relations with both the Geometry Group in the Mathematical Institute and also the Theoretical Physics Group in the Department of Physics.  A more detailed description of our Research Areas may be found by exploring the panel on the left. The specific research interests of individual members are contained in their department profiles, which can be accessed from our Members page.
